Wyndham Grand® is now taking reservations for its newest resort, the all-inclusive Wyndham Grand Barbados, Sam Lord’s Castle Resort & Spa.
The secluded, oceanfront hotel marks Wyndham’s entry into Barbados. It will begin welcoming guests October 12, 2023, with select amenities, followed by a formal grand opening in early 2024.
Situated on the southeastern side of the Island of Barbados, just 15 minutes from Grantley Adams International Airport, the hotel is located on the former site of Sam Lord’s Castle, which was renowned for pirates during the 19th century.
The all-new construction resort offers 422 guestrooms, including 37 suites with sophisticated architecture and sustainable designs, along with large ocean views and lanai-style private balconies.
When fully open, the Wyndham Grand Barbados will feature:
- 10 dining venues (Mediterranean Marketplace, pop-up food trucks, poolside dining, a specialty “farm to fork” experience, etc.)
- a 13,000-square-foot spa with a pool area and relaxation deck, along with a state-of-the-art fitness center and a sunrise yoga center
- lagoon-style swimming pools
- kids’ center
- butler service
- tennis and pickleball facilities/courses
The resort also offers 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests, top-of-the-line technology, and purposefully-built landscapes for staging special events.
An eco-friendly property, Wyndham Grand Barbados’ sustainability initiatives include using sustainably-sourced wood, a chef’s garden integrating food crop production and education, alternatives to single-use plastics, high efficiency fixtures, LED bulbs, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows in guestrooms to allow for natural light and ventilation. In addition, the resort’s Building Management System aggressively manages utility consumption, with guestrooms featuring sensors that detect when guests are gone to automatically engage thermostats to reduce excess energy demand.
“Barbados offers the perfect backdrop for a chic and upscale getaway—lush, tropical gardens, uninterrupted ocean views and an array of opportunities to unplug, unwind and make lasting memories with friends and family,” said Gustavo Viescas, president, Latin America and Caribbean, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Wyndham Grand Barbados brings all of that to life on our legendary grounds, allowing guests to take a step back to practice self-care and immerse themselves in the beauty of the nature around them.”
